Summary

Wrote for Luck ranges from North Norfolk to Chicago, from sordid old antique dealers to glamorous young writers, from glorious local gossips to frustrated academics.

The stories abound with gleeful absurdity and waspish humour. But they are also rich in melancholy and the heady sadness of people struggling to find places in the world.

Some are fascinatingly strange; others are uncomfortably familiar. Some are simply hilarious - and all are touchingly human.

Critic reviews

"These short stories are sophisticated morsels of modern life, needle-sharp, and touchingly aware of the social subtext.... Excellent." ( The Times)
"Sharp and clever...Taylor has a great knack of pulling the reader in, and his endings…linger long in the mind." ( Guardian)
